Parmak Solar Pak 6 Fence Charger

America's first solar-powered electric fencer, the Parmak Solar Pak 6, is low impedance and features exclusive built-in performance meter. It shocks through wet weeds and brush for livestock control in small to medium size pastures.

The Solar Pak 6's laser-trimmed, computer-precision, solid state circuitry provides reliable, powerful low impedance shock to end of fence. It uses free energy from the sun for maximum shock, day or night, and eliminates the need for expensive battery replacement or inconvenient recharging. The at-a-glance built-in performance meter shows you the fence condition: good, marginal or bad. While reaching maximum power in direct sunlight, battery will charge even on cloudy days, and will operate for 21 days in total darkness when fully charged.

Quit turning on what could be my problem?
Justin B on Jun 11, 2016
Best Answer: I found my hot wire one time touching my metal field fence grounding it out, the needle went back to green when I untangled it. If its not powering up at all , could be a problem with the battery not holding a charge anymore.

stopped turning on?
A shopper on Aug 25, 2015
Best Answer: I had a problem with mine at first. Turns out I had a short in one of the wires and it was causing the unit to drain. Is it making a faint "clicking" noise (do you see the needle bounce at all?) check that there isn't an corrosion on the ground wire and that your other connections are tight. If all else fails open the unit and test the battery. Hope that helps.

I am thinking of using your solar charger to electrify 2 wires of a 5 wire horse fence. I plan to run the wires straight through the center of each post (treated pine 4 in. diameter.) insulated by small non conductive electrical conduit and sealed at each end with RTV.. Do you think this setup is feasible?
Robert K on May 5, 2015
Best Answer: I cannot guarantee that this would adequately contain your livestock.

Does this charger have an on/off switch?
Patricia H on Mar 19, 2016
Best Answer: Yes. The black toggle in the lower center part of the control box is the on/off switch. My unit has worked well to protect my garden from deer for two years now.

What type of wire/tape would you recommend to use with this fence charger?
A shopper on Jan 17, 2017
Best Answer: I prefer the old fashioned wire, but you can use any type you want. While the tape or rope type have better visibility, I just tie on some surveyors tape if there is a new horse or I move the fence. The wire is more reasonably priced, sturdier, longer lasting and easier to repair.

what do color codes mean?
A shopper on Jun 8, 2015
Best Answer: The green on the indicator needle means the fence is properly charging. Red means there is a problem with the box or on the fence. Last month I was checking on it and found the needle on red and found my hot wire had got blown or pushed into my field fence grounding it out. Got the hot wire loose from the fence and it was back in the green and working properly. Had this charger for about four months now and have been real happy with it. Keeps my neighbors donkey from pushing down on my field fence!

Will this charger work with powerfields 7mm poly rope? I plan t use 3 strands for a 1 acre paddock.
kris m on Feb 21, 2015
Best Answer: This is for an electric fence. Does the poly rope include wire in its makeup? If so, it will work. I use heavy duty white tape with the wire, and it works great. Make sure you ground it well.

Hello,
My solar chargers needle is above the green but when I test the fence line directly, charge is very low.  I've checked the hot lines and they are not hitting grass or wood.  I use 2 lines of electrobraid horse wire and the area is about 6 acres.  I have 3 copper grounds in a triangle placed in a damp soil area.  I got the unit last year and followed instructions for charging before using.  Anyone have any ideas?
Thanks, Kim
A shopper on Apr 11, 2017
Best Answer: Ours works great on three acres. I also have double strands but both are connected together at the ends on either side of the gate which is not electrified. Contact with the ground and touching the fence is quite a zap.

It seems my battery isn't charging how long does it take to charge from being totally dead or in the red zone ?
Paul A on Mar 1, 2017
Best Answer: My charger stopped working. I took it to the feed store and they tested the battery, said it was fine. The feed store lady gave me the phone number for the Parmark company. Called them, the were as nice as could be. I ended up shipping it to them .... they fixed it and mailed it back, no charge. So get the battery tested, if it is not that, call the company. Good luck!
